NEW YORK (WPIX)—The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced several service changes Wednesday due to the New York City's declaration of a weather emergency for the overnight snow storm that hit the Tri-State area. The MTA is urging all sommuters to allow for extra travel time.
Straphangers on New York City subway can expect normal service, with the exception of the A, E, D and F trains to running local service in sections of their route. As well, express No. 6 train service has been suspended in the Bronx due to the snow.
Meanwhile, New York City buses are expected to run on a normal schedule. But Access-a-Ride service has been cancelled Wednesday except for trips of medical necessity.
Long Island Railroad is running reduced service during the morning commute, with 23 westbound morning rush hour trains canceled. The MTA says there is extremely limited train service in the LIRR's diesel territory, and there will be no diesel train service east of Speonk on the Montauk Branch and east of Ronkonkoma on the Main Line to Greenport.
Metro-North Railroad will operate on a Sunday schedule, and commuters can expect crowded trains and delays. Service on the Waterbury Branch is also temporarily suspended due to the severity of the storm in Connecticut.
